Toshiba Teli America CS8550DiF monochrome video camera features include random trigger shutter for capturing images with timing cued by an external signal and compatibility with standard C-mount lenses.

Toshiba Teli America Inc .’s CS8550DiF monochrome video camera provides 60 frame-per-second, double-speed, non-compressed VGA (640 x 480 pixel) output, qualifying it for high-speed applications, including machine vision, bar-code reading, semiconductor inspection, and gauging. In separate news, Cognex is offering free direct-part-marking seminars.
Toshiba’s CS8550DiF is targeted at the quality-sensitive OEM and for analog camera replacement markets, the company says. Based on a 1/3-in. progressive scan CCD (charge-coupled device) with a square grid array, this monochrome camera is said to offer plug-and-play ease with Firewire IEEE 1394 interface (400 Mbps) and PC-based control without a framegrabber. It works in many lighting conditions down to 4 Lux, with functions like backlight compensation and electronic shutter to help compensate for bright light sources. Construction is designed for harsh environments; compact size, 49 x 35 x 98 mm, permits installation in constricted spaces.
In other vision news, Cognex Corp. is hosting free, half-day seminars on direct part marking (DPM). “Understanding Direct Part Mark Identification” covers the most important factors to consider when implementing DPM ID for part traceability in the automotive, aerospace, healthcare, electronics and defense industries, including benefits, various marking methods, differences between reading and verification, code 'readability' for dot peen, laser, electrochemical etch or other types of marks on manufactured items, and U.S. Department of Defense UID implementation. Participants are encouraged to bring sample parts.
